In Memory of Saint Patrick

The heroics of St. Patrick are not appreciated as much as they should be. He is the first person in history to publicly condemn slavery, and one of the first leaders to champion the cause of equal rights.

There is much to celebrate on March 17. Fortunately, his writings, though slim, are eye-opening accounts of his life: “Letter to the Soldiers of Coroticus” and “Confession” reveal much about the man. Along with other sources, they paint a picture of his saintliness.
